The 4 miles I ran on the treadmill this morning almost killed me. The first 3.9 I was tired and wanting to crawl back into bed but the last .1 started feeling great and then I got mad that I had to go to faculty meeting and stop running. 23 school days until I have full freedom to choose when I run, whether or not to wake up before 11 a.m. and only change out of my running clothes on Sunday. If you are trying to choose a profession right now, teaching is the way to go…June, July & August, I guess there are a few other really awesome things about teaching too but summer really is the best;)
3 Random Tangents:
1. Why would Billy show me the website for most awesome thing in the world when they are all sold out of the product? As soon as I saw the pie pop maker I pushed the button to buy it and was beyond disappointed when I couldn’t.
Pie pops….think of the possibilities. We could always use another random kitchen gadget that takes up more space.
I am sure you could even healthify these and put spinach and sweet potatoes in there if you want but mine will be filled with sugarfied berries.
2. I think this picture is the perfect portrayal of what we really feel like after a track speed workout:
(My sis sent me this picture the other day, it was raining outside so they went walking on the indoor track. I promise Curly is okay, she is just a tad bit dramatic)
I found the perfect little chart that makes it easy to figure out where you should be in terms of effort for your different runs: (Source: Runners World of course:)
3. A cute friend of mine emailed me this story about her friend:
A FULL BODYSUIT for the entire marathon on a crazy hot day? All I can say is wow.
Sorry, you are going to get 4 tangents today:
My in-laws gave this to me and I am hiding it away so that no one else eats in until I like chocolate again. I know it will be amazing but I just need to get my taste buds normal again and stop choosing cheese over candy.
TELL ME SOME TANGENTS ABOUT YOUR DAY!!!!
Ever ran a race in a costume? What was it?
-Just one time with the sister when we were Pinatas.
Do you like the chocolate and peanut butter combo or the chocolate and coconut combo better?
Anyone else have a tired run today?
